Plus Money Lunch Money – Packers vs. 49ers


If you haven’t been paying attention, BTB and BTBJesse have been absolutely murdering the books in the NFL (and basically every other sport). 6-1 on Thursday night plays, and 17-3 on Week 2 plays. That’s just absurd guys, and it’s on top of being up over 55 units on futbol over the last month-plus. Below, we will break down some plus money plays that I like on the Sunday Night Game. If you want the expert plays, click buy packages above.


These two teams both have pretty high expectations on them for the season. The 49ers have started with a trip to Detroit, and they won easily. Then they went to Philadelphia in what seemed like a game that they could struggle – back-to-back on the road across country. They didn’t struggle as they won easily. Their defense is clearly back. The Packers looked like pure garbage against the Saints before pouring it on against the Lions on Monday night. Aaron Jones scored four touchdowns and Robert Tonyan had a receiving touchdown. It was a relatively effortless performance for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.


I’ve already shared the DeVante Adams stat from last year about 100 times, he scored the first touchdown of the game in six of his fourteen games last season, he scored the first touchdown for the Packers like eight times in his fourteen games. I’m not playing it though (although, it is something I like to just have a ticket on every game since early last season). Instead, I’m going to take a chance on Robert Tonyan at +1500. Rodgers seems to like him, and the 49ers allowed a score to TJ Hockenson in the opener. Rodgers targeted Jones four times in the red zone Monday, and Tonyan once.

The first thing I think happens in this game, though, is a Home Team Field Goal (under game props on DraftKings). The 49ers could march down the field on the Packers defense and score a touchdown, no doubt in my mind and that could kill the Tonyan bet, this bet, and even the other one I’ll mention at the end of this paragraph. But, I really believe that they settle for a field goal and are the first scorer at +425. I don’t see the Packers scoring a touchdown on their first drive but expect them to be able to move the ball. They are also +425 if you want to play it.


One last play for you – Deebo Samuel to score a touchdown is +120. I expect him to get behind the Packers defense and score.
